"Now the bill has been re-introduced in the Senate as S.216. The language is better. First, the jail term now is for violators of specific sections of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C) who knowingly and intentionally defraud or mislead and do so with conscious or reckless disregard of a risk of death or serious bodily injury. And second, the jail term applies to food violations, which the Senate Judiciary staff confirmed with ANH-USA would in this instance exclude dietary supplements, although based on their past behavior the FDA may not interpret it that way."
I know the knee-jerk response to these bills is always how big pharm is trying to take away our rights, but I personally don't see a problem with companies being held accountable for what they are selling, especially with compounds that have long lasting effects. If a company cheats me out of some grams of protein, I don't really care, but when it comes to messing with hormone levels, that isn't something I want to trust a flashy label or random people on the net I've never met before. I believe this move is going to happen sooner or later, so our best bet is to get people who are knowledgable to come forward and pass a fair bill that protects both the companies and the consumers.
